Track top Georgia and national football recruits from high school to college through the NFL / pros with AJC news, updates and more.
It will take a few years to assess the damage Lane Kiffin caused the Tennessee football program with this selfish antics. But the initial blast to recruiting seems to be over and certainly wasn’t as devastating as it could have been. But thanks to the quick hiring of new coach Derek Dooley, UT has managed to talk some high-profile prospects off the ledge and gotten them to stick . . . for now at least. Several major prospects have elected to stay on, including North Gwinnett offensive tackle JaWuan James. James left Knoxville last Thursday to return home to Suwanee to counsel with his family and gather his bearings. According to his high school coach, Bob Sphire, James returned to UT over the weekend and he began classes Monday (James has not answered multiple messages since last Wednesday)
